Reasons for the Share Consolidation
Subject to shareholder approval, the Board intends to proceed with the share consolidation in furtherance of a listing of the Company’s shares on a stock exchange in the United States.
The Company anticipates that the share consolidation may also result in certain additional benefits as a result of a higher post-consolidation market price for its Common Shares, including:
- enhancing the Company’s comparability against its peers on per share metrics;
- increasing the pool of investors to include those whose internal investment policies may prohibit or discourage them from purchasing stocks trading below a certain minimum price; and
- increasing analyst and broker interest as policies governing analysts and brokers may discourage following or recommending issuers with lower stock prices.
YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT- PLEASE VOTE TODAY
The proxy voting deadline is 9:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) on Monday, November 29, 2021

Projekt Öyfjellet försenat – beräknas färdigställas under första kvartalet 20223.12.2021 21:15:00 CET | Pressemelding
Hässleholm den 3 december 2021 I delårsrapporten för det tredje kvartalet, som offentliggjordes den 18 november 2021, kommunicerade Eolus att det finns risk för försening i färdigställandet av det norska 400 MW projektet Öyfjellet. Baserat på uppdaterad information om byggprocessen beräknar Eolus nu att vindparken färdigställs under det första kvartalet 2022. Per idag, den 3 december 2021, har samtliga 72 turbiner färdigmonterats. 34 turbiner har börjat generera el. Huvudskälen till förseningen är utmanande väderförhållanden, vilket har påverkat installationsarbetet, samt Covid-19 relaterade orsaker som begränsat både resemöjligheterna för personal och lett till leveransförseningar avseende komponenter. Förseningen kommer att ha en negativ påverkan på Eolus projektmarginal.

Project Øyfjellet delayed - new estimated completion in the first quarter of 20223.12.2021 21:15:00 CET | Press release
Hässleholm, Sweden, December 3rd, 2021 In the interim report for the third quarter, released on November 18, 2021, Eolus communicated a risk of delay in the completion of the 400 MW Norwegian wind project Øyfjellet. Based on updated information of the construction progress, Eolus now estimates that the wind farm will be completed during the first quarter of 2022. As of today, December 3, 2021, construction of all 72 turbines have been completed. First electricity production has been achieved by 34 turbines. The main reasons for the delay are challenging weather conditions which has effected the progress of the installations and Covid-19 related issues which has restricted both travel possibilities for personnel and led to delays in delivery of components. The delay is expected to have a negative impact on Eolus’ profit margin for the construction of the project.
